                  airport, after realizing that our motel was much 
                  closer than we thought.

Pearls of the seminar:
  1. It's quite easy, if we worked on it for 2 hours we'd get it (JR)
  2. The car looks like a photo with screwed up developing (MR)
  3. We look like 6 bears with an onion, except there is three of us, we are not bears and we don't have the onion (JR)
  4. Shall we take this turn? (JR) ... Why not. (MR 200m after the turn)
  5. Well. (MR, after finishing his pizza and knowing that he is not entitled to the last slice)
  6. It's quite empty here. I miss the people who'd leave once we began (JH)

Promile Award:
A nomination to all participants for relatively smooth digestion of the Chinese dinner. The proposer suggested in the morning, that whoever came up with that pub should receive an Antiaward for thwarting the AB proceedings.
